Help the novice PLEASE hooking up wi-fi

  1. I just bought a Dell Inspron 9300 and going to hook up a wireless system using the Netgear WGT624 router. It says to hook up the router to the PC. I just have the notebook that I want connected. Do I hook up the modem top the router and then the router to the notebook ??

    Hope that made a little sense!

    Suggestion.. establish a connection from your laptop to the router. then work on getting your internet established.

    Didn't make alot of sense.

    You connection needs to look like this


    [HIGH SPEED MODEM]
    |
    |
    [ROUTER]
    / \
    / ~
    wired -> / \ <- wireless
    / ~
    / \
    [DESKTOP] [LAPTOP]

    That is the physical connection.
